    Pathogen / infections agent = parasite, fungi, bacteria or virus that somehow is bad for our health As an example, in the textbook case of the common cold viruses, wash your hands (preferably with a disinfectant) and dont stay near disease vectors (sick people). This will reduce the chances that you get infected since you wont probably have people spraying microscopic virusfilled droplets into the air for you to inhale. And since you wash your hands you lower the risk of accidently infecting your self with those virus droplets you unknowingly picked up on the doorknob at work...
